            My father went to the emergency room on tuesday and was told that he has a 14mm tumor in his lung and "lesions" in all his bones and on the adrenal glands.  They took CT scans of his abdomen and his chest.  He's lost over 20 lbs in the last couple of months and has back pain (that's why he went to the ER).  They took a bone biopsy, but we won't get the results until next week.  But they believe it...
